As Australians, we’re all connected – geographically, politically, socially and economically. We share life on land that underwent great upheaval at colonisation. We share political, economic and social systems that have emerged from a history of dispossession of First Nations people. We’re connected to the fallout of these past injustices. The good news is, we can also be part of a brighter future together.

Our unique collection of stories and articles on this topic explores the different ways we’re all connected by the shared wound in our nation.

Browse articles and stories that explore the ways we’re all connected, and what this means for us as Australians, collectively and individually.
